Communication and Linguistic Situation In Karnataka: Demographic Perspectives

Abstract

Since the formation of Karnataka state on linguistic principle in 1956, the state is moving towards homogeneity with people who claim Kannada to be their mother tongue increasing their share in the population at successive censuses. The linguistic minorities who know Kannada as a second language have grown in number. The paper argues that linguistic homogenization and growing bilingualism in Kannada will bring down barriers to communication within the state.
